WIAA Names Quincy Junior High's Jaselyn Jones and Keithley MS's Andrew Padilla as "Give Me 5" Star Students of the Month


 The WIAA is pleased to announce Quincy Junior High’s Jaselyn Jones and Keithley Middle School’s Andrew Padilla as the May “Give Me 5” Star Students of the Month.

Jones is an eighth grader at Quincy Junior High in Quincy, Wash. She is a multi-sport athlete, participating in volleyball, wrestling, track and field, as well as Jiu-Jitsu competitions outside of school.

Beyond athletics, Jones is a WEB (where everyone belongs) crew leader and works hard in the classroom to maintain her 3.92 GPA. Jones has a reputation for treating students, staff, coaches and opponents with genuine respect and kindness, no matter the environment or situation.

Jones’s wrestling coach Phil Averill describes her as “everything you want in an athlete – hardworking, great student, tough competitor and a model sportswoman.”

Athletic director Teresa Goninan sums up Jones as a mature athlete.

“She understands the value of hard work and is not afraid to push herself to achieve her high goals,” Goninan said. “In wrestling, Jaselyn had a very successful year and always showed grace and poise at the end of matches; understanding the hard work that is put in by all competitors, win or lose.”

Padilla is an eighth grader at Keithley Middle School in Tacoma, Wash. He is a multi-sport athlete and captain of the football, wrestling and baseball teams. Padilla is also the basketball manager at Keithley, is involved in Leadership and Freestyle and Greco wrestling clubs.

Athletic Director Kyle Foster says Padilla has impacted Keithley with his work ethic (in athletics and in the classroom), respect and positivity.

“Other students practice, compete and develop better sportsmanship just by being around him,” Foster said.

“He is on task, achieves outstanding grades, is organized and never misses school. Andrew was not only the league champ for our wrestling team, but he has had several letters sent to me by other coaches about his sportsmanship during and after the contests.”

The students will be featured on the Activities Matter and the Middle Level websites. The monthly campaign is dedicated to highlighting two middle school students that demonstrate the core principles of the program: honor, sportsmanship, courage, respect, and citizenship.
